Brace yourself: Predictions and review of employment law for the new administration

Program Description

Anticipating a new administration, this session will cover and review what the leaders have said they will attempt to achieve in the next 4 years, at least. It is expected that the National Labor Relations Board will be making far reaching changes and reversing many decisions made in the prior 4 years. Similarly, the Department of Labor Wage and Hour department will likely be looking to ramp up enforcement efforts, including a focus on independent contractor status. Moreover, pay equity has long been discussed and emphasized as an area of legal challenges and it is anticipated that new legislation may be enacted and enforcement will be strong. We will also discuss the new makeup of the House of Representatives and the Senate and what the party representation will mean. It is expected that the first 100 days of the new administration will bring many changes and employer challenges.

Learning Objectives: 

1. Review anticipated new legislation in the coming year(s)

2. What may be expected to be seen from enforcement agencies such as the Department of Labor

3. Discuss the possibility of new standards and restrictions on employer tools such as non-competes and        arbitration

4. What may happen to the use of independent contractors

5. Will OSHA emphasize the requirement of providing a safe work place in the COVID era.
